Once I felt I’d recovered enough from my bicycle crash, I had to get out to the walnut trees and get the absolute last of this year’s crop. The grass had grown quite a bit, I raked the leaves the best I could, but the best way to discover all the fallen gems was to step carefully. Lots of bending over!I gathered about 55 pounds to make the grand total this year 560 pounds!
We had brunch at Justin’s house.A nativity scene to play with.Going for a ride in Grandma’s new Walnut Wagon.Another way to transport onesself.Sophia read to her brother, Bill O’Reilly’s book Give Please a Chance.While Mom and Uncle Justin discussed a landscape design plan,Sophia and Avery investigated a dirt pile.
Going to Maisie Jane’s in Chico is an annual trip for Justin. This year I was invited to go along … yay!Another of Justin’s favorite stops:Lunch at Sierra Nevada Brewery:In the space above the gift shop, you can see a collection of Santas begun in the 1980s by Karen Gosner, Mrs Sierra Nevada Brewing Co.Days like today are so special. Thank you Justin for inviting me to go along!
